About Embroidered Towels

But how do you tell a high-quality towel from a cheap and nasty one? Online and on the shelf they can both look so similar. Help is at hand! Trust our top tips and ensure you always choose deluxe towels that feel both indulgent and luxurious.
Towel Shop Tips for Choosing Great Towels:
Ask if the towel 100% Cotton
Cotton fibres hold nearly 25 times their weight in water. Towels designed and priced for basic use are usually made of standard cotton. Soft and thick Egyptian collection towels have longer threads meaning more absorbent loops per inch. Always make sure you buy 100% cotton towels and choose the royal egyptian collection for added thickness, softness and durability.
Look to see if the towel is well-made
Check for thickness and a well-stitched hem. The denser the stitch the more absorbent the towel. A good hem reduces the possibility of fraying and ensures your towel has a longer life.
Understand gsm and why it matters
Gsm simply means grams per square inch. A low gsm (300-400) means a thin, low quality towel. When a towel has a high gsm (500-750) it means superb absorbency, softness and quality. It’s that simple!
The New Range from The Towel Shop
The Towel Shop’s new Royal Egyptian Collection of hand towels, bath towels and bath sheets tick all the boxes.

Caring for your Towel Shop Embroidered Towels is Easy
The Towel Shop embroidered towels should always be washed at 40°C to stay looking fresh wash after wash and avoid puckering around the stitching. If your towels are coloured, select a washing liquid designed for coloured fabrics and avoid bleaching agents. Remember that fabric conditioner coats the cotton loops of towels and reduces their absorbency, so avoid it. Tumble dryers are great for plumping up towels and giving them additional softness, but make sure that you do not overload your dryer as this can cause wear and tear.

A great addition to your home or a nice gift idea, embroidered towels have a timeless quality and an historical feel. That makes sense – embroidery has been part of many different cultures for centuries. It is considered an art form. The earliest evidence of embroidery comes from China in around the 5th century BC. It has also been a big part of Turkish and Middle Eastern culture and continues to be today with exquisite crafts being famous in the region. Ancient civilizations of South and Central Americas used intricate embroidery in their clothing, while in medieval England embroidery was a way of making records – the most famous example being the Bayeux tapestry.
Today, embroidery is a hobby many people continue purely for fun – to express themselves in an artistic way. Such admirable creativity can be combined with the art of interior design and home making to create an environment that is a pleasure to be around.
